Andrew Miller & AssociatesVeterinary Orthopaedic Referrals
In these difficult times we wanted to reassure our referring vets that we are continuing to offer a referral service but we have obviously had to change the way we work.We will see urgent orthopaedic cases on a daily basis and please contact us in the usual way.
Fracture and luxation cases are obvious examples of urgent cases however there are less obvious cases such as a dog with unilateral cranial cruciate ligament rupture which is coping until contralateral rupture occurs.
If in doubt please contact us for advice. We will interact with clients based on social distancing guidelines and current RCVS/BVA and government advice. We will also continue to offer radiographic interpretation and phone supportIf for some reason, such as staff shortages or self isolation of a client, you are having difficulty seeing or investigating a case with an obvious orthopaedic emergency we could potentially see the case with history only but this must come via the referring vet and we will clearly not see self referred cases as usual.
If this is the case please contact us and we will give advice on an individual case basis.
Once these restrictions pass we will clearly have a backlog of cases and will adjust our normal working practices in order to deal with these as quickly as possible.
